Life at a boarding school for teenagers from wealthy families, especially one that welcomes attention-starved troublemakers, isnít easy for any kid. Ryan Dean West has the added difficulty of being two years younger than most of his classmates. Having the intelligence to skip grades doesnít guarantee maturity, but Ryan Dean finds more than a little humor in his situation even as he struggles to fit in with his rugby team, win the attention of an older girl, and understand the hate behind prejudices. (Booktalk by the Louisiana Young Readers' Choice Committee)
